Holders of Canadian Permanent Residency status (e.g. Canadian Landed Immigrants) with a current and valid PR card and a current and valid passport do not require a visa to visit Bahamas as tourists for less than 30 days. You must produce a valid passport and valid Permanent Residence Card as proof of permanent residency. This does not apply to persons using a "Travel Document" (1951 convention refugees).

PERMANENT RESIDENTS who are in doubt about the policy of visa-free travel should CONTACT THEIR AIRLINE for further details.
